SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_TRANSFER_ENCODING, long enable);

DESCRIPTION

Pass a long set to 1 to enable or 0 to disable.

Adds a request for compressed Transfer Encoding in the outgoing HTTP request. If the server supports this and so desires, it can respond with the HTTP response sent using a compressed Transfer-Encoding that will be automatically uncompressed by libcurl on reception.

Transfer-Encoding differs slightly from the Content-Encoding you ask for with CURLOPT_ACCEPT_ENCODING(3) in that a Transfer-Encoding is strictly meant to be for the transfer and thus MUST be decoded before the data arrives in the client. Traditionally, Transfer-Encoding has been much less used and supported by both HTTP clients and HTTP servers.

DEFAULT

0

PROTOCOLS

HTTP

EXAMPLE

TODO

AVAILABILITY

Added in 7.21.6

Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
